Good gear in the break (size 0 cam is bomber) and small cam below protects the move upto it - smallest metolius. nice to finally lead it after finding the lower cam slot. :)

not as fluid as the previous attempts - two decent cams in break but could be hard to place on lead.

nice, enjoyable long moves but break a little damp.

One slightly pathetic slump on the gear at the break before getting back on it.
